When Sony officially revealed the PSP Go, some eyebrows were raised by the system's $249.99 price point. After all, the current PSP-3000 system can play everything the PSP Go can play, has a UMD disc drive, and sells for $169.99 new.
Some of that sticker shock may be alleviated, as Best Buy indicates that the $249.99 price will at least include a game. According to the retailer's product listing, the retail packaging should contain "PSPgo system, USB cable, AC adapter, and Rock Band Unplugged voucher."
Harmonix and MTV Games' rhythm title Rock Band Unplugged released in June to a warm critical reception. Currently, the game sells for $29.99 on its own, although it debuted at $39.99. As with its console counterparts, Rock Band Unplugged allows players to purchase additional songs to play through the in-game storefront.
Representatives with Sony and Harmonix did not return requests for confirmation on the pack-in promotion as of press time. Also, it remains unclear if the voucher is exclusive to Best Buy or is a retailer-agnostic pack-in. Retailers like Amazon and Wal-mart do not list the handheld as being bundled with Rock Band Unplugged.
[UPDATE] Best Buy has updated its product listing for the PSP Go, removing all mention of Rock Band Unplugged and the voucher.
